This is a tiny little cafe not far from Sooke. We were recommended by the owner of our B&B (Arbutus Cove Guesthouse) and it was a delight. We had some coffees and cakes (all home made and are vegan & gluten free I believe) but the owners are so enthusiastic it is infectious and they remember everyone's name.

If we are ever passing through Sooke again this is a place we will definitely visit. Highly recommended.

An amazing example of how a business can thrive on word of mouth and recommendation alone. We heard from family from a friend from a friend to go here, so whilst on our Jordan River jaunt we stopped in on the way back to Sooke.
Phil greets you enthusiastically whilst dealing with other customers, letting you know they are busy but they appreciate you and that he can't wait to look after you! This place is infectious (in a good way!), smiles and hand shakes are free! Phil asks your name and remembers.
The sausage rolls came out of the oven hot and fresh and we ordered them as soon as we saw them.
They were out of the 2 soups on the menu which was a good sign that everything is fresh and made, and when its out its out ... a tin or can is definitely not opened! Minestrone was then served, and was delicious!
A song came through the speakers and Phil yelled 'Guess the artist for a free cheesecake' ... my boyfriend guessed and was correct. Everyone applauded! What a place!
Thank you Phil and staff, we shall pass on the good word and make sure all travelers stop in !

VERY GOOD experience. Super friendly owner and staff and the food is worth waiting for. Try the sausage rolls. DO IT!
Next time you go, i bet, they remember your name, which might be an unusual experience for some, but it truely encompasses the spirit of the westcoast. Yeah what a great place!

If you are anywhere near Sooke it is definitely worth stopping at Shirley Delicious. The food and beverages are truly delicious and wholesome - very tasty, yet light and filling at the same time. The people there are welcoming hosts and are a wealth of information about the area. It's no wonder everyone in that community knew and spoke fondly of Shirley Delicious when we mentioned this great place we ate at! We look forward to our next road trip exploring the coastline and stopping for a meal at Shirley Delicious!

Always a smiling face to greet you in this chic new cafe /bakery. Food is amazing, high end, delicious...so frickin amazing. So happy these guys took over. I heard about this place by word of mouth, of course..its Sooke..everything is word of mouth..So, anyone on their way to Jordan River, Renfrew, Sombrio or wherever. This place is the bomb. Be warned its a little pricey, but hey its totally amazing and worth every penny.example: $4.50 for a BBQ pulled pork Samosa. Which by the way ,was fresh out of the oven,and so wicked I ate2 in like 5 minutes!!!
